Toe interview given out by Sena

MB HUG ER SINKLER.
Mr. SliiKier in rising lu a questlo'
of personal privilege We.dnesaay ta d;
1 ris3 to a question of personal privt.
lege. I spr?k for myself and my state
ment is made on account of the fol
lowing paraKrnph published in an in
, terview with Senator TlUman which
appeared in the aftemocn papers
Wedoesday and in tbe morning pa
pers Tuursday: Without Charles
ton's nine votes the Morgan bill would
have been defeated by a majority of
two votes, so If the State dispensary
is abolished at this session it will be
done by a dirt? bargain between the
Old barroom element in Charleston
and these 21 prohibitionist*.
"Asa member of this bodv for
many < ears from Charleston 1 would
be lacking in self respect, carelet-s of
your esteem, if I permitted this reek
leas, unjust, untrue charge of bargain
and sale of my convictions, and my
convictions on this measure remain
unchanged. No bargin was ever
made to my knowledge, nor was my
vote inspired, influenced or controlled
by a oarroom element or any other
element or person whatever, and the
charge so boldly made is lacking in
truth and dignity. I voted for local
option because I believe the people
have a primary and fundamental
right to say and settle for themselves
what they want. Furthermore, I
would have voted for the Morgan bill
if Charleston ne?er got the option of
high license, although I believe Char
leston should get what she wants and
every other county shculd have the
same privilege. It is not my purpose
to retaliate with abusive epithets but
sicap'y to make this statement in
vindication of my attitude and vote
and in deference to my friends in this
body whose good opinion I value.
CAPT. HAILEL'S REMARKS.
The substance of what Capt. Ham -
el said Wednesday morning is as fol
"So much bad been said charging
prohibinionlsts with being in a com
pact or unholy alliance with the li
cense people that I wanted to stat my
position to be in opposition to license:
that the Morgan bill was not my b ll
and I had nothing to do with its prep
"The prohibitionists had nothing
to do with its being an issue tt^re.
That responsibility was upon one
d specsary people, who, in the c in
stitutional convention of 1895, cooper
ated with the license people to put
that option In.
"Mr. Clayton of Florence had effir-,
ed an amendment to tbe original bee'
tlon prepared for the regulation of
the whiskey question, which amend
ment provided that the licensing oi
the sale of liquor should be prohibited
in the constitution. The prohibition
ists in the convention were working
with the dispensary people for the
adoption of this amendment, as it
would limit the choice between dis
petsary and prohibition. But the
fate of the dispensary was banging in
the balance at that time and its con
stitutionality was being tested in the
courts. A member cf the convention
undertook to picture conditions as
they would be under State prohlbi
tion in case tbe dispensary was de
clared unconstitutional and he took
about tbe same view that the oppon
ents take now regarding blind tigers
overrunning prohibition counties.
The debate was adjourned and a con
ference was held between the dispen
sary and license people, and the pre
sent section was the result cf their
deliberations. Tne dlspensa.y people
and not the prohibitionists, In unh'.ly
alliance with the license tlement in
the convention are responsible, there
fore, that we have the issue of license
to consider .at all at this time. In
their votes hers in this legislature
the prohibitionists are seeking to
honestly choose tbe lesser in a choice
MR. DAD US BEJOINEB.

Pe-rn-na a Necessity in the Home.
J. B. Alexander, Publisher of the
*Truit and Floral Guide, A Magazine
of Horticulture," published in Hartford
City, Ind., says of Peruna:
"I was afflicted with catarrh of the
throat and head for over ten years. I
was treated by many physicians, but
grew worse until I was seldom able to
go out in cold weather.
"About one year ago I was advised to
try 1 ^runa, which I did, and I am now
entirely well of the catarrh.
"Peruna is a necessity in our home.
With the first symptoms of a cold we
use it, and are never afflicted with ca
"I advise all who are afflicted with
eatarrh .to try Peruna. There is cer
tainly nothing equal to it as ,& catarrh
medicine."?Jr B. Alexander.
Pe-m-na is a Systemic Eemedy.
If Peruna will cure catarrh in one
place, it will cure it in any other place,
because it is a systemic remedy.
I Pe-rn-na Always on Hand.
Mr. Fred Schnell, Lakevlow, Erie Co.,
N. Y., writes:
"I had been a sufferer for more than
thirty years with catarrh of the intes
tines. I had used a great deal of medi
cine to no avail, so I decided to try
"I have now used thirteen bottles
and can give you the joyful tidings that
f have no more trouble. I always keep
Peruna on band. "?Fred. Schnell.
The people generally are very much
misinformed as to the nature of catarrh.
Catarrh is usually believed to be con
fined to the head, nose and throat. Lat
terly we sometimes hear of catarrh of
the stomach and catarrh of the bladder.
Seldom, if ever, do wo hear of catarrh of
any other organs.
It is not b?cause these organs are not
subject to cutarrh, nor that catarrh of
these organs is not a very common dis
ease, but simply because it is not gener
ally known that affections of these
organs may be due to catarrh*

"About three months ago I commenced
to take Peruna and Manalin, and now I
am entirely cured of that troublesome

blessing to mankind.
" You can truly say that you have not
lived in vain, Doctor, and I thank you
for the good you hare done me. May
you enjoy a long life to help suffering
humanity."?Gustav M. Schmidt.
Dr. Hartman Makes Personal Use of
In speaking of his own personal use
of Peruna, Dr. Hartman says:
"Por a number of years my profes
sional duties have compelled me to bo
much on the road, traveling long dis
tances by rail, night and day, exposed
to all kinds of vicissitudes, sleeping and
eating in different hotels continually,
and through it all I have preserved my
self from any derangement of the body
resulting from catching cold.

few doses of Peruna invariably ohecked

Dr. Hartman's Method of Treating |
Naturally, when he began the Btudy
of medicine his mind turned instinctive
ly toward the removing of causes. He
could not content himself with doctor
ing symptoms any more than his enter
prising father could have contented
himself by pulling off the tops of weeds
to eradicate thorn from the soil.
The Doctor turned his attention early

In other words, Dr. Hartman ap

The sensible farmer does not think of

Dr. Hartman Interested in- Fanning.
Notwithstanding Dr. Hartman's busy
professional career, ho still continues to
be interested in farming. Ho is the
owner and manager of one of the largest
farms in the State of Ohio, with several
thousand acres of the best tilled land in
the Middle West, and with hundreds of
